Apple Roses for Fall

Apple Roses for Fall

I have posted these before but I felt that these are so perfect for Fall, so I wanted to share them again. 

Here is what you need to make them.

Apple Roses
Makes 12
Muffin Pan
Large bowl
Cutting Board
One small bowl
One large pot
Rolling pin


Puff Pastry
4 or 5 Large Apples
8 Small Apples
Apricot Marmalade
1 Lemon
Cinnamon Sugar
Powdered Sugar


1.) Wash your apples and fill your bowl with water and add the juice of one lemon.  Be care not to get the seeds in the water. 

2.) Then you need to cut up the apples.  To do this cut them in half.  Then cut out the core and make sure you get the tips at the top and bottom of each apple. 

3.) Slice them very thin and place them in the bowl of water with lemon juice. 

4.) Now you cook the apples to make them flexible.  There are two options here, you can microwave them for approximately 4 minutes or you can cook them on the stovetop in boiling water until they are nice and soft. 

We put them in a pot on the stove and we were very pleased with the results.  If you have a low power microwave the stove top is the best way to cook them. 

While you are waiting for the apples to cook you can get the marmalade and the puff pastry ready. Also, now is a good time to preheat the oven to 375.

5.)  In a small bowl mix, 3 parts marmalade with  2 parts water.  I used 3 tablespoons of marmalade and 2 tablespoon water.  

6.) Microwave the marmalade for 30 seconds and mix well. 

Now for the pastry...

6.) Open pastries and lay a sheet out on a surface with flour on it.  Flour the top and use a rolling pin to roll it out thin.  then cut it into 6 strips measuring about 3 inches wide each. 

Make sure your apples are cooked and pull them off the stove.  Let them cool for a few minutes and get them out and place them back into your big bowl. 

7.)  Take one strip of pastry and cover the top with a thin layer of the marmalade.   Lay the apple pieces in a line across the pastry with the red skin above the pastry line (see photos).  Then fold the bottom edge up and over the apples about half the way up, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and  roll it up.  Then place in your muffin pan. 

Note: I have nonstick muffin pans and I did not need to use cooking spray but if you think you need use just a little. 

8.)  Place your pastries in the oven at 375  for approx. 45 minutes.  Check on the periodically. 


When they are cooled you can sprinkle them with powder sugar if you desire.


I just wanted to take a moment to say how thankful I am to be back blogging.  I enjoy sharing and posting my projects and I totally love visiting my blogger friends.  Thank you ever so kindly for visiting me, it is greatly appreciated.

Happy Fall,
